Need for Speed: Shift
The LP 560-4 appears in Need for Speed: Shift as a tier 3 car with a 10.80 car rating and can be purchased for $220,000. It is unlocked upon earning 80 stars in the career mode.

Need for Speed: World
The Gallardo LP 560-4 was made available in Need for Speed: World during the Taiwan restricted test session on October 14, 2009 as a tier 3 car. Since August 22, 2012, it has been featured as a B class vehicle.
It has the lowest top speed of all tier 3 cars (179 mph / 286 km/h) and is prone to understeer through high-speed corners. It also doesn't have an all that impressive acceleration or potent nitrous boost.
Since the release of the May 30, 2012 patch, its stock top speed was improved to 189 mph (304 km/h). Its acceleration and handling were also significantly revised to make it an average class B car, which doesn't exceed in any performance aspect except for being prone to oversteer under excessive cornering.
It is suited for Pursuit Outrun and Team Escape, since its weight can be useful for ramming police vehicles. Compared to other cars with the same price tag, it has better handling than the Ford GT, more power than the BMW M3 GTR, but loses to their more powerful nitrous boost and better steering response.
Before August 22, 2012, it could only be purchased if the player was at Driver Level 30 or above and cost 600,000. On April 30, 2015, its price was lowered from 1,400,000 as part of the End of the World event.
The Tensor style is a rental car that can be leased for 300. It was made available on June 28, 2010.
The Limited Edition style is an art director car initially released as a top-up gift from March 4, 2011.
The Megabloks style is an unreleased variation included as part of a disbanded Need for Speed and Megabloks promotion.
